We started elevenM with a view of combining privacy and cyber security skills in a meaningful way. Our goal was to create a consultancy that helps clients monitor and protect their data throughout the data lifecycle, allowing them to build digital trust with their customers and ultimately drive competitive advantage.

Our team comprises deep experts and respected practitioners in privacy, cyber security, risk and communications, based internationally and around Australia. To build our team, we’ve drawn carefully from our collective networks, and we continue to identify and bring new talent into our team.
